Teen Mental Health Project

The Peninsula Health Care District Board of Directors has partnered with San Mateo Union High School District and Stanford’s Youth Mental Health and Wellbeing Center to develop and launch a school-based teen mental health model that will:

1). Identify problems early;

2). Get students needed help promptly;

3). Improve coordination between school providers and parents.

The District committed $1.5 million to this project, which will serve seven high schools and 8,500 students. PHCD funding supports three new Health and Wellness Coordinator positions responsible for developing and implementing a multi-tiered system of wellness and mental health supports, training for staff, developing wellness activities and interventions, and collecting pertinent data.
